Project Description
The Transport for NSW proposal is being developed in stages to ensure infrastructure is in place to support the thousands of new houses and jobs being created in Western Sydney. Stage 1 will connect Parramatta and Westmead to Carlingford via Camellia with 12 kilometres of dual track in a dedicated corridor. It will connect Parramatta’s CBD to the key areas being transformed by the NSW Government and private investment, including the Westmead Health Precinct, Parramatta North Urban Transformation Program, the new Western Sydney Stadium, the Camellia Precinct, the Telopea Urban Renewal, and Western Sydney University campuses at Westmead, Rydalmere and Parramatta CBD. Key features of Stage 1 of the Parramatta Light Rail include 16 highly accessible stops, regular services from early morning to late at night, including services every 7.5 minutes throughout the day, integrated Opal ticketing, and modern and comfortable air-conditioned vehicles with a capacity of at least 250, and a system capacity to carry 10,000 people per hour during peak times and special events. Planning work for Stage 2 of the project – will run north of the Parramatta River through the rapidly developing suburbs of Ermington, Melrose Park and Wentworth Point to Sydney Olympic Park – is underway and is expected to be in 2018. This planning is being done with other government agencies and transport projects including the Sydney Metro West with stops at Olympic Park and Parramatta. INSW was consulted for the information included for this project. A copy of the full pipeline document is available at www.insw.com.
